Rain
Today dawned as a rainy day. I had an early victory because as we were drifting off to sleep last night I was sure that I smelt rain and I told the Juffin to bring his work clothes in off the line. Of course he refused, so I got an 'I told you so' in before...

Nice
This week I heard a few stories that made me a sad. No, I'm not talking about HONY but dear God, the tears. This was about other Mum's being total C's to each other.  Like really, really awful and mean. Heads up ladies, you're not fucking better than anyone...

Today I visited one of the large shopping centres and spent half an hour hanging out in the parent room.  As breastfeeding mother's are wont to do. Anyway, as I was changing Molly's bum, I noticed this delightful sign on the wall. Rude!! Pharmaceutical comp...

Body
